    Perfect Venue

    We fell in love with Helmingham Hall from the moment we first saw it. The buildings and gardens are stunning and the 2 moats with all the bridges look incredible. We had a relatively small wedding, so getting married in the coach house was the perfect size for us and spreading out into the courtyard in the evening was lovely.
    Katie and everyone at Helmingham were amazing in the lead up to and on our special day. Due to having access to the venue from the Friday (to decorate) until the Monday, we were made to feel exclusive and special, and helped make the weekend feel really relaxed.
    Jac (the caterer) and her team were also brilliant and all our guests mentioned how lovely the food was.
    We couldn't have wished for a better day, and Helmingham Hall and all the staff there were fundamental in making it so special. Thank you!

    Uniquely Stunning

    Helmingham Hall was the perfect venue for us. It offers a stunning backdrop with the Hall and beautiful gardens, as well as plenty of character and local history. The grounds and buildings available, give so much flexibility that we were really able to make the day our own. We wanted something relaxed and fun, yet still special with an element of tradition. We found all of this here at Helmingham Hall. With a church within the grounds of the hall we were able to walk with our guests across the grounds towards the hall after our ceremony. It was a beautiful walk and a lovely way to start our reception. The organisers, caterers and staff at Helmingham hall were incredibly accommodating and friendly which helped make the whole day more relaxed and special. They were never short of ideas or help when it was needed. One of the best things about Helmingham Hall was the fact it did feel very exclusive and you were not part of a conveyor belt of weddings throughout the year. This was evident from the energy and care the staff showed us in helping put our day together and making it unique. We would absolutely recommend this as a wedding venue.
